Recovery Nutrition Class for the WCC

Recently, the Women’s Care Center welcomed a special guest speaker. Robin Holliday RN, stopped in to do a Recovery Nutrition class and answer some basic questions. She explained how brain nerve cells are wired differently in addiction and that it takes time to re-wire. She acknowledged the unique challenges faced by women in addiction recovery, and reminded us of nutrition and hydration needs during withdrawal. Robin discussed that nutritional needs change through the various recovery stages. 



Sharing information on hydration and practical tips for maintaining a healthy diet along with tips on understanding thirst versus hunger, made it a really beneficial afternoon. Also, understanding the nutrients to focus on and a color chart of nutrients was an added bonus. Robin also shared information on the importance of open communication with healthcare professionals and how to advocate for our own personal healthcare needs. 



If you would like to learn more about the Women’s Care Center or how you can partner with us, either prayerfully or financially, please contact Sherry Stewart, our Director at (352) 787-8929. Let us share some of the exciting things that God is doing in our midst.
